This problem typically occurs when someone downloads Nero, and then uninstalls it, using one of the Nero Clean tools. I've been looking forever to find a way to get my CD Burning capability back and am getting ready to re-install windows unless someone can point me in the right direction.

Hi,
make sure that your program that is setup to record. i.e nero-img burn et,c. is set to look at the drive D:- Or E:- whichever letter your drive is assigned by the computer.
Also try using a different Blank-media. if any disk has failed a full write, without finalizing Or creating the Table Of Contents. It will read as Empty Or Blank. you can see This By looking carefully at the underside of the Disk, to see whether it has been burned by the laset. ( Towards The Centre ) if the Dye is darker on the inner-edge, then this is possible.
You can also try using a different Packet writing software, or re-install the program.
Hope this helps.
Mike @ Compurepair.

Disc drive no longer reads discs, when trying to burn error "please insert empty disc" pops every time, regardless of CD inserted.


Assuming you have already tried a cleaning kit, the unit has probably burnt out the laser and will need replaced. Luckily new DVD+R burners can be found for less than $25.

How do you burn a cd on this notebook?




  1. Insert a writeable CD or DVD into your computer's CD or DVD recorder.
  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to data disc.
  3. In the Burn a Disc dialog box, type a name for this disc, and then click Next.
    It might take several minutes for the disc to be formatted in the default Live File System format. When the formatting is complete, an empty disc folder opens.
  4. Open the folder that contains the files you want to burn, and then drag the files into the empty disc folder.

    cdb4d559-8825-47a1-8175-79020965d91c.pngYou can copy files to the disc folder by dragging them to the disc icon or to an open disc folder As you drag files into the disc folder, they are copied automatically to the disc.
But I recommend you to use any CD or DVD burning software like Nero, BurnAware etc. There are lots of free burning tools available on Internet too.

Why I recommend third party software is because you can select burn speed plus minimum disc burning error.

VGC-RB30 DVD/CDR DRIVE


You actually perhaps using a non blank disc at that time. Burners don't really accept non writeable Discs. Check your CD first before burning. If you are using a rewriteable disc (CD-rw) that has files, it can burn and files will be overwritten but if you're just using a CD-r with files in it, the burner will eject and will tell you to insert a blank disc.
